So,

Goals scored in the game. And the time of the first goal as a tie breaker.(polite not to have the same minute as someone else with the same score)

Winner takes all.

You have to pay in £100 virtual pounds. YOu could stand to win potentially millions of non existent beer tokens!!!!!!!!

I will bump every now & again, and we'll see who wins.

What did I do CITH2?

What do I get?

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 14:52:03

erm I was merely pointing out in a gentle & scholarly manner that you understood the difference between cash & and IOu.

insertexpletive Sat 12-Jun-10 14:55:38

Discussion of the day already, with only 44 posts... is this a MN record?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 12-Jun-10 15:02:59

Hello.

It's not the number of posts that make threads DoD-able, insertexpletive, it's the quality of posts/brilliance of subject matter...

And, erm, we're going to tweak the title of this thread just a little to save catinthehat2's blushes - obviously, she meant to say England v USA, not UK v USA <hoists kilt>

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 15:04:08

Maybe MN have got an enormous spread bet on somewhere and are trying to pass messages to the rest of their <ahem> syndicate without getting caught out by the authorities.

But I couldn't possibly speculate about the reason.

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 15:08:48

Yes, exactly as I thought. Helen's got a Yankee Each Way accumulator which could compromise Mumsnet Limited as a going concern.

And that kilt thing, that was a sign to the rest of her syndicate.

Boy, she's going to be in such a lot of trouble on Monday.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 12-Jun-10 15:11:19

ssh, catinthehat2 <looks round furtively and adjusts sporran>
